Erika Jayne Reveals Why She’s Still Married to Tom Girardi + If They Are In Contact

1 comment

Erika Jayne declares she isn’t worried about finalizing her divorce from her estranged husband, Tom Girardi, and reveals if they are still in contact.

“In the order of all of the problems I’m facing, it’s probably the absolute last thing [I care about],” the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star told Entertainment Tonight in a new interview published on Tuesday.

“I just don’t think about it. The day I filed for divorce and we were legally separated, that was it for me,” she continued. “We are in very different places. I have a lot to clean up and pick up and move on.”

Erika Jayne notes that the timing of her split from Tom in 2020 came down to needing to protect herself and her future.

“Even after a two decade-plus marriage, that’s what it came down to, looking out for yourself,” she explained.

However, the Bravo star admits she’s still grieving the end of her marriage.

“You have to grieve a marriage,” she said.

“I had a complete change of life — not just a marriage. [It’s] a sickness of a spouse, and then losing your home, and your money, and all at one time, so grieving that sort of stuff and working through the legal problems is a lot. My heart will always be open,” she continued.

The 52-year-old filed for divorce from the 84-year-old now-disgraced former attorney in November 2020 after almost twenty-one years of marriage.

The split came just one month before Tom’s entire law career imploded. In December 2020, families of the victims of the 2018 Lion Air Flight 610 airplane crash filed a class action lawsuit against Tom for embezzling their settlement money to fund his and Erika’s lavish lifestyle.

In February 2023, Tom was indicted by federal grand juries in California and Illinois for embezzling more than $15 million from his various clients over the years. Tom is accused of embezzling $3 million from the Lion Air crash victim’s families.

Erika has denied any knowledge of Tom’s crimes and has expressed “empathy” for all of his victims. Just last month, Tom participated in a competency hearing to evaluate whether or not he is mentally fit to stand trial for his alleged crimes amid his battle with dementia. The final determination has yet to be decided by the judge in the case.

Meanwhile, Erika Jayne also recently chatted with KTLA, where she revealed whether or not she’s still in contact with her estranged husband.

“Not at all,” Erika said when asked if she stays in touch with Tom. “No one really knows this [but] I had to put my dog, Tiago, to sleep two weeks ago. It was a day in which Tom was calling me 20 times a day, and I just said, you know what? ‘I can’t do this.’ And I blocked him. So, it’s been blocked for two weeks, and you’re the first person to know, so there you go.”

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills season 13 premieres Oct. 25 at 8 p.m. ET on Bravo.
